If you don’t know it yet, they comprise the Internet of Things. Despite the hefty price tag, the majority of us do not hesitate in buying these tech luxuries and basically have transformed them into living staples that almost everybody must have.

There is a big drawback here, though. We may enjoy all the perks that technology brings yet we can’t deny the fact that they have somehow complicated our mere existence especially when something goes wrong. Technological innovations in itself are flawed and full of loopholes that cyber criminals use to their advantage. Even the Internet is not a safe place anymore or social media where many of us end up sharing way too much personal information than necessary. It also explains why so many people end up as victims of ransomware attacks, for instance, because of how we take technology lightly and don’t take enough precautions even when using our personal gadgets.

Yet still, we can’t deny how much easier and more comfortable life has become now that we have these smart gadgets to do most of the work and thinking for us.

Are We All Ready For Elon Musk’s Hyperloop?

Successful people don’t just dream, they dream big. And when they dream, they give their all and make that dream happen at all cost. It pretty much describes the man that is Elon Musk. If you haven’t come across his name yet, he is the renowned founder/owner of Tesla, Space X, and man behind the revolutionary transportation means, the Hyperloop. The Hyperloop is one ambitious project as it is. It is essentially Musk’s proposal for a modern passenger and freight transportation that looks like a sealed tube but can travel at unimaginable speeds. It is easily dubbed by many today as the way to travel in the future once it becomes a reality.

A man that isn’t confined by conventions, Elon Musk is doing things that many only dreams of. Not only is he flying rockets into space and driving around posh electric cars, he has this crazy wild idea of making the Hyperloop a real thing. Can you even imagine seeing the Hyperloop come to life? Many are actually excited because it will hopefully put an end to many transportation problems we are now facing. But will we be able to see one in our lifetime? We really can’t tell although Musk and his people are working really hard on this project.

Ever since Elon Musk shared his blueprints for the hyperloop – a revolutionary transport system that has the potential to shuttle humans at speeds of more

Too Many Apps? Free Up Space On Your Device

Since we live in the digital age, most of the things we do have gone digital too. Only a few people do things manually. Why make it harder for yourself when you can simply look up things online and have them saved right on your device for easy access and storage. But because we have grown accustomed to the use of technology in our daily lives, data storage became an increasing concern for us considering the amount of data we accumulate over time. From photos, music, videos, files, and other important documents you need for various purpose, they need to be stored somewhere accessible like a computer or a laptop perhaps.

Smart gadgets are popular too and they allow us to have a smooth browsing experience because it works like any conventional computer device albeit it usually fits the palm of your hand. While most have a built-in internal storage system, some allow you to use an external SD card or external disk drive where you can migrate your files for long-term storage once your device starts running out of space. Storage space is especially a chronic problem among iOS users mainly because iPhones aren’t compatible with any type of external storage added into it.

Windows or macOS running out of room and crawling to a halt as a result? Nowhere to store your latest batch of phone photos or iTunes music purchases? Dwindling computer storage space is a problem

Why Data Recovery Matters At A Time Of Widespread Malware Threats

We can’t deny how much technology has made our lives so much easier. We no longer need to do most things manually and everything is just simply automated. That in itself is already a blessing. Imagine no longer having to put in the manual labor to get things done. Yet no matter comfortable and convenient our lives have become, there are its drawbacks too. Everything can go haywire in an instant when you encounter a tech-related issue. It is even more difficult if you are clueless about how the technology works itself and you have no go-to guy around that can help you with your digital concerns. You should, by the way, have a go-to guy.

As complicated technology already is, the rising threat of cyber attacks is also a cause of concern among tech users. Malwares are everywhere. You can hear it constantly mentioned on news and it makes tech user’s stomach queasy with the jitters with just the thought of getting hit by such a major headache. Malware often attacks older models of computers and laptops but there have been mobile versions too. These malwares have been so nasty they even managed to cripple many businesses and organizations all over the world and even the UK’s healthcare system a few months ago. Patients missed out on their medications because the medical staff can’t access their data on the computer. Everything just vanished.

In Q2 2017, cyber criminals involved
